Christmas On The Street..

What We Have Been Up To: Call For Support.

On the 8th day of December, we had our Friend, Banker, and Guest Speaker, Mrs. Olowu Tosin engaged 96 high school girls in Ikola community. It was a mentoring session which borders on the importance of showing up. A session, with a difference! Thank you, Mrs. Olowu & Faloju for also visiting children at Helper's Academy. We love it when friends show up...Find attached Photographs for more updates :)
On the 14th day of December, there was the Pleasant surprise and Christmas gifts for all teachers at Helpers Academy! (Helpers Academy is a non profit school and, intiative of Street to School which aims to provide quality education for school drop outs and out of school children). It was a gift pack, with live Chicken!

International Day of Persons Living With Disability.

December 3rd: Celebration of the International Day of People with Disability.

Disability Day is not concerned exclusively with either mental or physical disabilities, but rather encompasses all known disabilities, from Autism to Down Syndrome to Multiple Sclerosis".

Early this week, I shared this photograph on my IG page of a 15year old girl who stopped going to school after basic 6, due to her 'disability'. We were invited to her house, to discuss how we could assist her back to school. She's been out of school for 5years! No mobility aid (wheelchair) whatsoever! She is always indoor while her siblings go …
